This classic show is dynamic and edgy. One of the most unique features is that the orchestra is on stage for the duration of the show, it's a great feature for those who are especially fond of music. Since the show has been around for a while it's easy to grab discounted tickets at the TKTS booth in Times Square just before the show. Balcony seats are a good idea since the actors do spend some time mid-air for certain numbers.
Watched it Friday at the 8pm showing and I got my tickets for 50% off at the TDF stand. It was well worth it at that price to me. The play was entertaining and I throughly enjoyed it. My girlfriend loved it too but her only complaint was that she didn't like the woman who played Roxie as not being sexy enough for the part. I wouldn't listen to her though. I liked the woman who played Roxie.
I saw Chicago a while ago and every time I see the marquis, I say to myself, "you need to see that again." This play was great! The music is moving and the dialogue is quick moving and very funny. I honestly was taken to the show and I was apprehensive as I didn't know anything about it. I ended up loving it and definitely recommend to everyone.
I went to see Chicago last week as i’m a huge fan of Brandy and she was starring for a limited as Roxie Hart. I love the movie so I brushed up on the tunes and got my 3rd row seat. I absolutely loved it! There is very minimal sets and you don’t need them as the storyline takes more center stage. The Fosse style choreography was great. Brandy was very impressive. She has a TV acting background but theater is very different. She was funny and really brought the character to life. Her voice was amazing! Hearing her sing, you can understand why they call her the vocal bible. I love how she made the songs somewhat R&B and brought a new flavor to role. Definitely a play worth seeing.
